September 2017 News!

Dear Friends,

Summer is winding down friends and I hope you’ve had a good one and shoot – maybe still enjoying what’s left of interesting and quirky summer!

Weather wise this summer been mild and seriously wet (I hope no one this list has friends or family that are in jeopardy in Texas or Louisiana because of Hurricane Harvey) and the political air is as toxic as it’s ever been. Still, we the people who see things differently are coming out to battle these ugly forces. Those of us making creative work are doing all we can to at the very least keep positive energy out in the world. We must keep on…

And I’m keeping on with an active Fall that includes album releases and some wonderful concerts. The gig page on the website is up to date so check it out! I’ll be back in more detail about these concerts as the time gets closer. But let me bring you up to speed on what’s coming right up!

Summer Announcements: MoMA, Creative Improvisation Workshop and more

Dear Friends,

How is your summer going so far? Tremendously fulfilling and gloriously relaxing is my hope for you! I’m just back from Vancouver, BC (Canada) working as the Artist in Residence Workshop facilitator for the TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival. Which translated into hosting all the artist led workshops (the festival features 10 such workshops) as well as running one of my own. Incredible to have an opportunity to hear how my fellow peers go about their work and how each artist found ways to connect with the audiences that came out to these well-attended workshops to hear what we all had to say.

I gave my workshop in Vancouver on Creative Improvisation, a subject of vocal technique and development I’m more passionate than ever to teach vocalists and instrumentalists alike. Giving musicians the ability to improvise with their voices and the tangible tools to do so. As a long time improvising vocalist that figured so much of what I do on my own, having the tools to share how to open that door and go down that road feels like a new journey. The workshop in Vancouver at Tom Lee Music was live streamed! Here is it below:

Creative Improvisation


Yes teaching improvisation beyond the jazz realm is a path I’ve been moving toward more as an educator.  Spring 2017 I gave my first Creative Improvisation Course ( a 4 week – 8 hour Course) which sold out and had a great response from the students and musicians that took part. The course and the subsequent feedback was tremendous and I’ve booked a follow-up course that starts this September 19, 2017.  This is an even bigger course – a 12 hour course running for 5 weeks with another concert at the end.  In this course participants will learn, discover, explore and leave with tangible tools for improvising inside, outside, alongside songs and beyond.
12 Hour Course on Improvisation-Full Schedule
Tuesdays, September 19 & 26: 7-9PM
Wednesday October 4: 6:30-9:30PM
Tuesday, October 10: 6:30-9:30PM

Testimonials
“Fay Victor is the truth. She is a Teacher, Guide, and Mentor to so many. I took Voice Lessons with Fay for several years and when I saw she was kicking off a Creative Vocal Improvisation Workshop, I was thrilled. This was my chance to get past this fear & anxiety I have battled with for a decade or more. I also knew that Fay would provide me with the guidance and a safe space to work through those issues, while also challenging me to maximize the potential of my instrument. As I guessed, Fay took the Vocalists on a beautiful journey. One, with no rules, with the exception of one, and that was to listen. Listen to your yourself, your fellow Vocalists, and the band. Be mindful of where the music is going and where you can go along with it. My view of the possibilities of vocal expression are forever changed. I see shapes, colors, and the ability to interpret even a painting into sound on my own terms! I owe this all to Fay and recommend this Workshop, Private Lessons, and any chance to afford yourself the opportunity to work with her.” – TM

“The Creative Improvisation Workshop allowed me to step out of my mind and into the depths of  my feelings.  What I’ve learned most from the experience is that being in the moment, both still and actively listening, brought out my true artistic expression.  Fay provided a foundation for us in the form of technique and improvisational language. But, the heavy focus that I normally apply to my singing was lessened because I was trusting in the moment. As a result, the technique and language followed.  I encourage all singers to jump into the experience, step out of their norm and find their whole creative selves.  Sharing this experience with other women also added a spiritual element that is not always present in traditional jazz workshops.  I am looking forward to the next time.”JL

Finally, I mentioned that I was a part of a movie made by an amazing young artist named Martine Syms that has an exhibition at MoMA up till July 16th – which means one more week!! New Yorker Magazine gave her a lot of love this week.  Read the great piece here and go see the show before it closes.http://www.newyorker.com/culture/persons-of-interest/how-to-be-a-successful-black-woman

Thanks for reading and I’ll make a post shortly about the 55BAR Birthday Hang coming up!

June 2017 is Busting OUT

Greetings!

I hope this message meets your eyes in good spirits despite the turn the world seems to have taken. I believe that love does indeed still conquer all.
“Hatred does not cease through hatred at any time. Hatred ceases through love. This is an unalterable law.” – Buddha

Personally, all well in this neck of the woods, not too long back from the London UK and finished up May playing with the great downtown quartet Sexmob for the first time, playing in a new trio with Satoshi Takeishi’s compositions on Japanese death poems (haikus) at The Stone then my monthly happening at the 55BAR with Marvin Sewell + Sean Conly this time around.  June is tightly packed with happenings – starting with the phenomenal Vision Festival –  and I wanted to share what’s going on.

February 2017 NEWS & Happenings

FV with shades
Friends!

Wow – just 2 1/2 weeks into this new administration and the world seems like a distant planet. I hope landing here finds you well and adjusting to the new reality of our world with a healthy perspective. More than ever I feel a deep gratitude to be a creative person in this time. I can document and give voice to my frustrations and concerns in many ways. So performances and opportunities to interact with audiences in various communities mean everything to me and I’m making it a point to be VOCAL however I can. If you feel you have a voice, you too need to figure out how you can speak out. It is a little easier for us so let’s use it. Here’s what’s happening:

*55 BAR Residency this month features Marika Hughes (cello) and Darius Jones (alto saxophone) in OLD SONGS, NEW SKIN, a re-calibration of older compositions of ours (myself and Jochem van Dijk). It’s been a fun exploration and we’re planning to record these pieces in the near future. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 2017 7-9PM, 55 Christopher Street, NY, NY
Marika & Darius

*We entered NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest! Keeping it protest and real, choosing a tune from the Fay Victor Ensemble’s first album (Cartwheels through the Cosmos -Artistshare 2007) entitled SPIN, written during the Bush Administration and how they manipulated the press into convincing the American people to go to war in Iraq and Afghanistan.

*Here’s the latest video of my SneaKAttacK project, combining original video, music, texts and sounds with a political perspective. This one is entitled WHITE.

*Starting on February 28th, I’ll host my first CREATIVE IMPROVISATION Workshop here in New York City. It’s a 4 week course that is now sold out with very little promotion. This is exciting because I’ve felt there was a need fro vocalists to tap into other ways of improvising with their voices and I have so much to say on the subject. I’m looking forward to working with the participants and to the final concert at the end of March where we put it all together.

January 2017 saw the 3rd anniversary of the passing of the great Roy Campbell. Roy was a fantastic musician that was loved not only for his sound but also for his support of musicians and his honesty in letting you know how your music landed on him. His passing revealed how precious that energy is within a musical community. He is still sorely missed. Here is a something we did back in 2011 called KAISO STORIES and avant jazz – calypso project and this piece is WE is WE.

Thank you for reading and remember…we who oppose this new administration are finding our footing and making our voices heard. That may be all we can do for the next 2 years but its VERY important for us all to be in that fight. At the end of the day the policies seek to help no-one but those least in need of anything. If we all remember that, we can steel our focus and work out the language to rally everyone who will suffer the long term effects of 45’s agenda.

Happy Holidays + One Last Show!

Some Holiday cheer from my nabe in Brooklyn, NY
Some Holiday cheer from my nabe in Brooklyn, NY

Greetings and Happy Holidays to you all.

This has certainly been a trying year, yet I aim to end 2016 and move into 2017 with as much light and love I can muster.  I saw myself begin to shrink in some ways after November 8th, fearful of what may befall me and my friends, colleagues and family.  As a person of color, it’s hard not to be painfully aware that we’re in a time space of inspired separation and no matter what side of the divide you stand – less of us feels safe.

But this  h e a v y  feelings has lifted, I see random acts of kindness all around me.  I see many trying to cling firmly to their goodness, doing what they can to be a positive force.  So I wish you all the very best wishes for the season and for the future.  We can only look up and we’ll find the good way to make it through.

If you’re in New York City around the holidays and want a nice and sultry thing to do, join me for my last gig of the  year at the 55BAR!

Till then,

Making this post on Election Day 2016.

This may be the last post I make in a world that I know. I hope it isn’t so.

Greetings from Troy, NY where I’m appearing in a movie conceived and filmed by an amazing artist named Martine Syms. An incredible young artist you NEED to check out. The distraction is intoxicating and welcoming. Irregardless of how it goes I hope we all find a way to heal the wounds that this election has kicked up. Whatever side of the aisle you’re on, you can’t think that hatred is healing or positive. I’m wishing us all good luck for an outcome we can live with. Love, art, and music will still be here and we will need it more than ever!

October 2016 News and Views

Greetings friends,

Deep into a busy Fall season with wonderful things happening.  Here’s hoping all is wonderful in your world. And perhaps I’ll see you at one of the happenings coming up.Just a recap about September before going forward…it was chock full of exciting performances and important lessons!  Recorded a beautiful project with the legendary trombonist Roswell Rudd and with trumpeter composer Wadada Leo Smith on his Oratorio for Rosa Parks, which we also performed on the FONT Festival. I also spent an incredible weekend in Montreal performing a few concerts and running a Creative Improvisation Workshop. Great audiences, a full workshop and many magical moments and many thanks to my great host Geraldine Eguiluz who made the trip North possible.

A recap of September 2016
A recap of September 2016

September ended as most months in my musical world do – at the 55 BAR in the West Village of NYC performing with saxophonist Darius Jones and cellist Marika Hughes with Old Songs, New Skin – pre-FVE compositions of mine and hubby Jochem van Dijk.  New Skins indeed.  We worked out some interesting approaches that we performed on Thursday and WOW.  Song transformation!

This Autumn in New York is almost perfect weather wise.  The bombing in the middle of September rattled but didn’t shake us New Yorkers.  Barely anyone has mentioned it since.  Once of the things I love about living here.  We live with too many different beautiful people to know that you can’t generalize about anyone.  You’ve got to take people as they come.  So we’re OK. But my antennae is up. We’re one month shy of electing a new President to this nation.  I want to ask you all to vote.  This election more than ever, this maybe one of the most important elections ever. Make your voices heard.  Thank you for reading.

September 2016 and more. Happy Autumn!

Greetings to you all,

Summer is just about over as the Autumn season beckons, in fact it’s already begun. Folks headed back to school are already there and the warm weather in NYC can’t change the angle of the new light, how it sets on the horizon. How the hues are changing as the earth’s axis starts to pivot away from the sun on our hemisphere. I see it in the news cycle. A presidential election is also on horizon…long a-coming. Feels this world may be transformed by the result. As I write this the night before the 15th anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center in my city, I cant help but think how that fateful day and loss of dear life planted the seeds for where we are now. Now feels like another fateful moment, period, era. I’m slightly anxious yet hopeful that we’ll wake up on the first Wednesday in November breathing a sigh of relief. A collective sigh..

roswell-recording

So as this season unfolds, I want to share with you the amazing projects and shows I’m honored to be a part of. In fact I’ve already dove into the season working 3 days right at the beginning of this month on a new project with the great trombonist Roswell Rudd. We spent 2 days in the studio with a day off in between up near the beginnings of the Catskill Mountains. It was a beautiful and powerful few days connecting with Roswell, bassist Ken Filiano and pianist Lafayette Harris, Jr. The air, good country walks and long meals and conversations added that extra magic to the music we laid down. This is also my first album performing standards in about 15 years. So I’m very excited for everyone to hear it when it’s released in 2017 on Rare Noise records. Now back in NYC, I start off my performing schedule doing a jazz brunch this SUNDAY, September 11, 2016. I do these so rare and only at the North Square. Maybe see you there or any of the other options this season.  Looking forward and thanks for reading.
